The article focuses on the idea of taxing the airline sector as part of the efforts to tackle climate change. It notes that taxation, according to the airline industry, is a blunt instrument. Paul Steele of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) asserts that there are bodies that want to point at aviation because it is considered an icon associated with lifestyle. He cites that a global sectoral approach led by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to climate change is the only sensible approach for aviation.
